PTS Pali-English dictionary The Pali Text Society's Pali-English dictionary
Phalamaya,stands in all probability for phalika-maya,made of crystal,as is suggested by context,which gives it in line with kaṭṭha-maya & loha-maya (& aṭṭhi°,danta°,veḷu° etc.).It occurs in same phrase at all passages mentioned,and refers to material of which boxes,vessels,holders etc.are made.Thus at Vin.I,203 (of añjani,box),205 (tumba,vessel); II,115 (sattha-daṇḍa,scissors-handle),136 (gaṇṭhikā,block at dress).The trsln “made of fruits” seems out of place (so Kern,Toev.s.v.),one should rather expect “made of crystal” by the side of made of wood,copper,bone,ivory,etc.(Page 477)
